FREE children's bicycle helmets are available at Seaside Police Department and Astoria Fire Department. Most sizes from small to large are usually available. The child and parent/guardian must be present to receive the helmet.
Safe Kids North Coast has a Car Seat Clinic Calendar and information about obtaining a $25 car seat for low income families. If you would like to know what kind of child restraint system your child should use, go to ChildSafetySeat.org
Clatsop County provides recreational opportunities on and near the Pacific Ocean, Columbia River, and multiple lakes.
